Lately the weather in PA has been anything but predictable. Once Spring officially arrives, my internal clock begins to count down the days to summer. I have been stuck in the house way too long by March and I'm ready to get to all those Projects.
By Spring the list of "things to be accomplished" has surpassed the size of the weekly grocery needs. Flowers need to be planted, weeds pulled, beds mulched, porches sanded and repainted, and screen doors replaced (just to name a few things).
My husband and I did our annual walk through the yard today. As usual, we each have our own vision of what we would like our property to look like in a few weeks.
I was hoping we would open the pool Mid March. Hubby thinks that after Memorial Day will be just fine.
My plans to replace our gazebo were scrapped by Hubby today. He says our current Gazebo should last another 5 years. I'll have to remind him later that it's not made out of men's underwear (which is another thing he also likes to hold on to despite shape or appearances).
We discussed adding another bed on the side of the house to accommodate a pom pom tree. After fifteen minutes going back and forth with ideas, we collectively decided that there will be no new beds or pom pom trees....just rocks. Yes, when in doubt, add rocks. If it was up to Hubby, I suppose our property would eventually resemble something from the Flintstones. There is nothing wrong with that, everyone needs a dream.
While at Lowes today I picked up yet another Rhododendron. This will be number four (I think). There are a total of five hanging around the property, yet despite our best efforts one relieves itself from duty every season and steps into the light (apparently a much happier place than our little abode). Say a little prayer friends for our newest addition.
We are expecting sunny skies the next three days, so it's time to get busy. Thanks to all who left comments about our new mini-van shopping adventures. We are closing in on a decision. Hopefully by Monday we will have a new landscape, new wheels, and of course...new rocks!
